What do you guys think? Obviously it’s got a Chinese ESC and hubs (maybe custom who knows), but how thin is that board with the integrated battery? 10 ply canadian maple and 1 ply fibreglass and that’s it!
FWIW this is an established company with a history of delivering (even on Kickstarter). You can order many of their products now that’s in stock.
Yeah the external pack one looks to be based of the new Lycan series and the thin decks based off the H9 which means prismatic cells yay. Honestly idk though since I have never ridden them, but the owner is way overplayimg his hand with the whole best of the best angle.
Their initial market was for downhill longboarding.
It was a BIT gimmicky, but their main feature is that it’s extremely difficult to get flat spots. Because of the angled ridges, you can slide almost horizontally and the wheel will keep spinning and wearing evenly. So long as you don’t slide perfectly sideways they’re great.
But for eSk8? Where we don’t want to ever lose traction?
I have shark wheels on my regular longboard for quite some time and I absolutely love them. They look super cool, are a bit faster due to less friction and they perform noticeably better/safer in wet conditions and when there is debris on the street. I can’t name a single disadvantage apart from price and that they aren’t as durable I think.
But for an esk8, I don’t know.
